What do you do when you’ve been a solid contributor, valued member to a growing team, who always goes the extra mile, and gets positive praise daily from coworkers plus great reviews yet as a mid level production designer with a multitude of skills (who’s been knowingly underpaid but enjoys the freedom of working remote) has her creative director quit (who labored his team out of love) - domino effect, eventually their team falls apart and you find yourself being laid off “effective now”

2 days ago YouTube ads asked me to vote YES on something Indian tribe area gambling thing. Today, another YouTube ads asked me to vote NO.

Who is your favorite Chicago musician or music group? I’ll start with mine: Jan Terri. She started off with little success until she was later discovered by a famous musician finding her music in a garage sale. She’s badass and a true Chicagoan. Playing her spooky Halloween music. https://youtu.be/PoD9gVdeIS4
Dad's a little guidance please. We bought a Chicco car seat with base and a stroller that accepts the car seat. . I've been reading that other brands (e.g Britax, MaxiC) do not have a base and remain in the car. So how to Britax car seat parents move/carry their infants around? Remove from the car seat and hand carry or prop into stroller?
Currently, I put the baby into the car seat and he stays in it and is carried around in it. Trying to understand the process if I were to buy a Britax.

Just got done with a final case interview. He didn’t have questions because we were over time but he said if he thought it was not worth hearing, he would have interrupted me. Then he said usually no questions is a good sign. He mentioned there are 2 other final interviews today so he needs to decide from 3 people. Finally he said that the offer will take until next week so you can hear something from us then?

Never worked there but lots of friends who / have worked there. And I’ve been in the city and industry a while. My impression has always been that it’s a good regional shop. You won’t get famous for your work. They do a lot of pro Bono / CSR type work. I don’t know why they don’t win big national accounts though.
